WhoSE side are you on?
A show about family, consequences, queer identity, and the meeting of opposites, this digital adaptation of the Ancient Greek tragedy The Bacchae puts the audience's agency at the heart of the experience. The story of the unlikely romance between conservative businessman Paul and the queer anarchist Drew is shaped by the audience every step of the way. Echo/Chamber seeks to find meaning and nuance in more than 240 characters.
